SW forest cottages scale new heights
Balingup Heights Hilltop Forest Cottages have claimed gold at the 2017 Perth Airport WA Tourism Awards.
The cottages won the top prize in the self-contained tourism accommodation category of the awards at the ceremony at Crown Plaza on Saturday.
Cottage co-owner Deb Vanallen said she was thrilled with the result.
“We pride ourselves on our personalised customer service and have worked very hard to add those ‘one percenters’ to ensure our guests have a truly special experience,” she said.
“To be acknowledged by our peers is very rewarding.
“Much of our success has come from the development of partnerships with other small businesses in the region.
“We’re very proud of Balingup and our continued growth depends not only on visitors enjoying their stay with us, but on them having fabulous experiences right throughout the region.”
The cottages received a silver in the same awards last year.
Gold medallists in each of the categories now go on to represent WA at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards, held at Perth Stadium on February 23.
